When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

A Special Delivery

Way back at the start of the year I signed up to take part in a 'Pay It Forward' thing - in total I have 5 people who I have to make something for this year. Now my crafty fab friend Stephanie-Emma is one of those five. Over the last couple of years this lovely lady has supported me and been so generous so I wanted to make more than just one thing for her.

So I got colouring and coloured up some of both of our favourite characters and made this little lot - 

This is actually the photo Stephanie-Emma shared on her FB page, but I forgot to take a photo of all of the items together so I asked if I could use it!

There's a Thank You card, 2 bookmarks and a calendar. Each with characters coloured by me using a mix of markers. The Calendar took ages as I also coloured the background and tried out different techniques.

Here's some close-ups -

All of this was waiting at home for Stephanie-Emma when she got back from the big craft show at Ally Pally, I forgot she would be away but it kind of worked well as it was a nice surprise on her return!!

Hope you have a great week. Take care Zo xx
